  • I'm sure some of you will relate

    A womwn called a local hospital. "Hello, could you connect me to the person who gives information about patients. I'd like to find out if a patient is getting better, doing as expected, or getting worse." The voice on the other end said, "What is the patients name and room number?" "Sarah Finkle, room 302."
    "I'll connect you with the nursing station."
    "3A Nursing Station, how can I help you?" "I'd like to know the condition of Sarah Finkle in room 302."
    "Just a moment, let me look at her records. Mrs. Finkle is doing very well. In fact, she's had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, she's to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and if she continues this improvement, the doctor is going to send her home on Tuesday at noon." The women said,"What a relief!, OH, that's fantastic... that's wonderful news."
    The nurse said, "From your enthusiasm, I take it you're a close family member or a close friend!" "Neither" I'm Sarah Finkle in 302! Nobody here tells me nothin!!"
    Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
    So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
    Good luck and stay well.
